Mahmood Yakubu-INECThe Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has said there is no going back on the December 5 governorship supplementary election in Kogi State.

To underscore its level of preparedness, the commission said it had prepared its supplementary budget for the election.

The INEC Deputy Director of Voters Education and Publicity, Mr. Nick Dazang, stated this in Abuja on Saturday.

According to Dazang, INEC was not ready to either shift or postpone the scheduled election.

Dazang said, “We are prepared for the election and we are not thinking of either postponing it or cancelling it. In fact, we have prepared a supplementary budget for the election.

“The budget is for the conduct of the election and it will cover expenses such as accommodation, allowance and other logistics for the election”.

He further disclosed that the budget was already submitted to the commission’s chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.

On when the All Progressives Congress would submit the name of its new governorship candidate, Dazang said the commission had yet to give the party a deadline.

“We are not talking about deadline for now, but we expect the party to submit the name of its candidate by December 1”, he added.
